We need your help!
CLO needs to raise $50,000 to complete the much needed renovations to our Day Services Center in Lawrence, KS. These funds are required to complete the remaining interior renovations for both the interior space and entrance before winter. This includes: a new, expanded, and fully accessible kitchen; a warm air-lock entryway; and some needed tables, chairs, and supplies. Please, consider supporting this important project. The people with intellectual and developmental disabilities served by CLO will benefit from your kindness and generosity for years to come.
